Don’t Try To Rush Through Your Belts


It’s funny How people ask to be promote by time just because IBJJF put minimum time for each belt.

Don’t forget is minimum, NOT maximum .

If you ask me for belt because you already pass your minimum time in your belt you will be going to double your minimum time with me.

Promotion for me is about understand what each belt means, NOT time at that belt. 

At Carlson Gracie Academy if you asked about promotion you got at least a big: “Are you Crazy, go training and when I see you care more about BJJ lifestyle than the color of your belt you going to be promoted to the next rank”


Simple and fair enough. That’s the way it should be anyways!! Oss 

Take your time and Embrace the Journey!!
